Waiting on Wednesday (#33)

Posted October 17, 2012 by Sherri in Features / 1 Comment

“Waiting On” Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

 

I recently saw this cover posted while surfing the net and yowzah was I taken aback by the cover. Droolworthy to the prime.  I love military, suspense, romance novels and Lisa Marie Rice is one of the best at writing them. I absolutely loved her “Midnight” and “Protectors” series. If you haven’t checked her books, you should if you love strong military type guys.

 

Heart of Danger: A Ghost Ops Novel

Lisa Marie Rice

Avon Red, November 6, 2012

ISBN: 9780062121790, 304 Pages

Categories: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Military

 

Book Summary:

They are Ghosts. They do not exist. Their birth certificates have been destroyed, all traces of their civilian and military pasts wiped out. They have no official military rank and wear no uniforms or insignia, save a tiny steel pin of a striking hawk forged from the rifle that killed Osama Bin Laden. Once again Lisa Marie Rice delivers a sizzling, heart-stopping new series as only she can tell it.

 

Ghost Ops. A small team of super elite soldiers so secret only two men know of their existence-General Clancy Flynn and their commanding officer, Colonel Lucius Ward. On a mission to destroy a US-based lab working on weaponized bubonic plague, the team is betrayed by their commanding officer. The Team is massacred and only three men survive to be court martialed: the Team Leader, Tom ‘Mac’ McEnroe, tech genius John Ryan, and lethal Nick Ross. They disappear en route to prison and are never heard of again.

 

Mac and his men hole up in a high tech lair, completely off the grid. But when a beautiful woman somehow finds him, he doesn’t know whether to kiss her, or kill her.

 

Dr. Catherine Young is on a mission, propelled by forces beyond her control to find a man who has disappeared off the face of the earth. She is bearing a deadly message from a dying man. Catherine has a gift that allows her to see into the heart of others. But looking into Mac McEnroe’s heart is like looking into the heart of danger itself.

“Waiting On” Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

 

Lynn brought up an upcoming book in her review for The Cowboy and the Princess by Lori Wilde.  I know she is looking forward to the next in the series. So, since it was a Christmas book, I thought this weeks theme would be upcoming Christmas Romances we are looking forward to. 

 

Lynn’s choice is:

A Cowboy for Christmas: A Jubilee, Texas Novel

 

 

 

A Cowboy for Christmas: A Jubilee, Texas Novel

Lori Wilde

Avon Books, October 30, 2012

ISBN: 9780062047809

Categories: Contemporary Romance, Westerns, Christmas

 

 

 

Book Summary:

It’s Christmastime in Jubilee, Texas, but Lissette Moncrief is having a hard time celebrating….

Especially after she accidentally smashes her car into Rafferty Jones’s pick-up truck. Yes, he’s a whole lot of handsome – from the tips of his boots to the top of his Stetson. But he’s no Christmas present. Lissie’s not about to let herself get whisked away by his charming ways and words….only to watch him drive away in the end.

But what Lissie doesn’t know is Rafferty’s in town just to meet her – and to give her a share in a windfall that doesn’t rightly belong to him. At first, he just wants to do his good deed and get out. But one look at this green-eyed beauty has him deciding to turn this into a Christmas to remember. . . making promises that he’s determined to keep-whether she believes in them or not.

 

My choice for the week is from one of my favorite authors, Sabrina Jeffries.  I’ve been looking forward to Pierce’s story for awhile. So this is a must read for me!
